    If your offended by this you have to sheild yourself from every major newspaper or televised news show. Or heck tv and Internet all together.

    I'm not trying to be rude but honestly are you not offended everywhere you look?

    Here's the thing...I can't. This site is frequented by people of different races, creeds, religions, ages, and sensibilities. I've been on this site for quite a few years and seen a lot of edgy stuff and really appreciate it but this is over the top and I want the site admins to take it down and apologize. I've watched this site grow over the years to a one-stop fountain of knowledge about all things BlackBerry. It's also a place where, with few exceptions, people are respectful of one anothers' opinions even when they disagree.

    Part of having certain standards is making a stand. You see, it's part of the word itself, isn't it? This site has to reach for a higher standard than it did in its early days because its reaching a larger audience than it did back in the day.

    So, It offends me, yes. Does it make me a prude? I don't think so. I'm writing this because I care.
    Just because something offends you doesn't mean that said thing should change. If the picture offends you, then feel free to state you are offended; but don't think the world should revolve around you and cater to your every whim by having the picture removed.

    If I am offended that you are offended by an innocent picture, should Crackberry respond to my demands by removing this entire thread?

    This reminds me of a test we took in the 6th grade. It had 20 "to do" items.
    The first item was "read all instructions" and as you progressed through the items each got more and more strange and difficult. Finally, the last item read "now look at all the people that choose to do items 2-19 instead of following the instructions in item 1.

    Moral of the story read first act second.

    Just don't combine LONG with POLE or better yet LONG with VERTICAL with POLE.

    Is anyone else thoroughly offended by the post on the front page of a stripper on a pole? I just don't know what this world is coming to anymore that I can't view crackberry.com without having to immediately wash my eyeballs with vinegar. How am I supposed to explain this to someone if they happen to see me browsing this? Shame on crackberry.
    Get over it....you need to understand what people are saying and what the picture is. It isn't a stripper or a stripper pole. It is a vertical workout bar and a women preforming a exercise on it. If you expect people to be tolerant of your needs you need to be tolerant of others aswell. You have taken this out of context and got your panties in a twist for no reason. You can't expect the world to censor around you...mi suppose you don't take your children to the mall or even visit the mall your self. walk by any La senza or the like and you will see women in huge posters wearing bra's and panties...I suppose the beach is out of the question for you and your family as well....this is ridiculous and you should probably be focusing your energy else where...maybe work?...

    I think we better tell our firemen when they are sliding down that pole to answer that next 3 alarm fire they are sliding down a stripper pole...lol. Just because you see a pole it dont make it a stripper pole unless a stripper is using it. That young lady does not look like a stripper to me. She is way to fit!! All poles are not being used for just stripping

    Actually if you look at the OP's posting history you would realize she was being funny. Which I can put up with.

    When I was younger I remember always sneaking a peek at the lingerie section in the JC Penny's Catalog.
    It was National Geographic for me. Entire societies without shirts! Spent the better part of a year begging my parents to find Jeeesus and become missionaries.

    So, It offends me, yes. Does it make me a prude? I don't think so. I'm writing this because I care.
    Isn't this the exact wording that someone else had written in regards to the "Hiding your porn now requires and app" article that was put up a couple of weeks ago. So are you the same person or is this a joke making fun of that person. Also I personally don't think there is anything offensive with the picture since there is nothing wrong or immoral about it. Just because you are attaching a perverted image to the pole she is using but that's your own interpretation and doesn't mean that using a pole for exercise is immoral. I think its fine if you have a problem with it but I don't think you have a right to demand an apology for the article or to have it taken down immediately.
    I think Couchpotato4life is referring to these two posts from the poster "webmeister" in "The ability to hide your porn now requires an app from BlackBerry 10"

    Tasteless. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that this is not appropriate for this site. Call me a prude, but I expected better from you guys.
    and

    Yes, seriously I have seen some of the stuff that's been posted in the past here...I've been here for 4.5 years. Duh. I say I'm offended, and the knee-**** reaction is "lighten up" or "chill" as if my opinion and those of others like me are somehow wrong and easily discarded. You're running a site frequented by many ethnicities, sensibilities, religious background and moral codes and this post's accompanying picture will offend many of them. I express this as my own opinion, without attempting to speak for those other groups but I'm pretty sure I've assumed right. Do you want this site to prosper? If yes, both you and this site better grow up. While you're at it, visit this thread and do your site mod thing and either lock it or deal with it. http://forums.crackberry.com/general...e-post-site-a

    Definition of plagiarism as according to dictionary.com:

    plagiarism [pley-juh-riz-uhm, -jee-uh-riz-]
    noun
    1.
    an act or instance of using or closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author without authorization and the representation of that author's work as one's own, as by not crediting the original author: It is said that he plagiarized Thoreau's plagiarism of a line written by Montaigne. Synonyms: appropriation, infringement, piracy, counterfeiting; theft, borrowing, cribbing, passing off.


    It's quite possible that 'webmeister' and 'katiepea' are the same person. Nevertheless it seems to me that 'katiepea' has taken the thoughts of 'webmeister' and possibly claimed it as her own.
